COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fresh sour cherries (krieken) in two year old Lambiek. We use approximately 300 gr cherries for 1 liter Kriek. The second fermentation in the bottle is obtained through addition of a liqueur, made with beer and saccharose.

(Bottle 75 cl) Slightly hazy blood red - no head and completely flat. Fresh and fruity aroma with prominent cherries. Thin and somewhat watery body with acidic - but fresh - accents of cherries. Remains sourish all through the finish. 281006

Yes, thank you to JoeMcPhee for this great beer! An impressive, brightly colored brew - flamboyantly red with a pink head. There’s no doubt that this is a cherry beer from the aroma: sour, musty cherries prevail. The sourness is not too overwhelming in the flavor, as some of the Cantillon beers are for me. This is a nice balance of tartness, hints of maltiness and plenty of fruitiness. Very good.

Huge thanks to JoeMcPhee for sharing this at beastiefan2k’s place - pardon my french, but this beer is the shiznit! (I know, not the greatest word to describe such a refined beer) - beautiful red body with a slight purple hue to it - the aroma has the customary Cantillon funk, with damp oak, cherries, of course (pits and all) - very mild sourness for a Cantillon, complimented by a very subtle sweetness and acidic cherry flavor - later in the flavor, and all through the finish, there are some warming, almost Christmas-like spices that I couldn’t really identify, but they made the beer even more delicious - I will have to shell out the money for another bottle so I can spend more time figuring out what makes this beer so great.

chicagobears (431) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2006
2003 bottle. Beautiful dark cherry red with pink dissapating head. Sour aroma of cherry, citrus and that Cantillon funky smell. Mouth-watering flavor, oak, cherry, sourness, vinegar and dry. Quite intense. A sticky cherry sweetness lingers. Thin and a bit watery while remaining complex.

yngwie (14907) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2006
Bottled at Horsens Beerfestival. Cherry-red, unclear beer with a rim of pink bubbles on the top. The aroma is sour and citric, with hints of cherry and some notes of yeast and barnyard. The flavor has cherry, not the artificial one, almond and some sweet notes. Thin, astringent mouthfeel and a sour finish with cherries. Very nice kriek. (061028)

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2006
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, Vintage 2002, Bottled 2004). Blood red. Nice earthyness with restrained fruits, almond like cherry stones and zesty citrus. Aroma is quite inviting and leads into a wonderfully fresh and zesty mouthfeel with an orangey sourness in the finish. As would be expected from Cantillon dry and sour. My one complaint with this would be that after drinking the best part of the bottle the juxtaposition of some fruit in the aroma and the intense sourness highlights the sour flavours and light body. On a side note mulls very successfully.

Skinnyviking (7595) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2006
Bottle. Small white head. Hazy red body. Sharp cherries aroma and flavor. Would have expected more fruit flavor. Too much acidity.

thewolf (11383) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2006
Pale red colour with raspberry red head. Aroma is yeasty with a feel like cow farms. Quite full body. Sour as always but with a woody flavour gives it a roundness.
